Different Approaches to Editing Documents

There are different approaches to sharing documents, where a group of people want to be able to make comments on a document and alter it.

One approach is Track-Changes, which we're all familiar with in MS Word. This is very useful. But then, after three or four sets of changes, it gets too confusing. The Track-Changes approach is best between two people; it does a reasonable job of letting you see what changes have been made.

Another approach is one we've just been looking at, that of SharedDoc, from SharedBook. Here, someone owns/controls a document. Other people can post responses at arbitrary points to comment on the content. Subresponses of arbitrary depth are allowed. Here, comments aren't applied, unless the owner specifically decides to allow them. Reviewers must be specifically selected by the owner. This is another approach valuable in a variety of contexts where one seeks reviewer input, such as proposals, legal services, business documents, and publishing. SharedDoc is in beta, by the way, and is currently free.

Some other approaches to editing shared documents include:

  • Wikis, where people can go in and make changes directly, with an audit trail of the changes. You find this approach in Google Wave.
  • Content management-style versioning. You also find this in SharePoint, for example.

Conferencing and PSTN Use for Audio

Conferencing technology--such as Cisco WebEx and Microsoft Live Meeting--has two approaches to the audio element. You can route it over the data network, or you can route it over the conventional telephone system ("PSTN" or "Public Switched Telephone Network").

In principle, it's much better to treat the audio as just another data type for the conference and route it over a data network. This makes things much easier for users, because you can have tight integration with the conferencing application. No remembering and entering phone numbers, for example. And usually cheaper.

Internally, companies often run the audio part of conferencing over their in-house data network, because their internal network is fast enough and delivers data in a timely way. However, where participants must connect over public data networks, notably the public Internet, it's common to fall back on conventional telephony, because voice transmission over public data network connections often is not quite good enough for the audio part of a conferencing session (even though most of us have experienced pretty good voice quality at times via Skype).

There are two reasons for this audio-over-Internet shortfall:

  • Voice over IP technologies like Skype convey voices much less well when several people are chiming in and even talking over one another--as quite often happens in a conferencing session -- than they do for a one-to-one conversation
  • Conferencing behavior is very sensitive to slight delays in delivering the voice signal voice, known as "latency". In the public Internet, there's lots of latency, long and variable, as individual packets of data are delivered via widely varying routes through the network. For a discussion via electronic conferencing, that means all those subtle unwritten rules--about when and how it's OK, or not OK, to chip in and interrupt--get really disrupted. Users find that very unsettling

When will the public Internet be good enough so that it's the default for the audio element of conferencing? Our current guess is around 2014 in most rich countries. In other places, probably quite a bit longer than that. Could be 2040 in some places.

However, that only applies to users who depend on the public Internet, with its best efforts/no promises level of Quality of Service (QoS). More and more businesses are buying Wide Area Ethernet services from telephone companies. Those are IP networks, like the public Internet, but unlike the public Internet they use quality-enhancing techniques like MPLS that reduce latency, lost packets and other QoS problems. Users of such services will likely be able to realize the full benefits of routing both the voice and data parts of a conferencing session together over a data network, long before it becomes the usual method for users who rely entirely on the public Internet. ...

Mobiles Will Be The Locus of Conferencing Innovation

Today, PC-based conferencing vendors such as Cisco, IBM/Lotus, and Microsoft tend to focus on PC-centric innovation. Eg., support for multi-person video cameras, integration with PBXs, integration with desktop applications.

However, I think the biggest innovations, starting perhaps in 2012, will be found among mobile phones. These will have sufficient bandwidth and computing power to compete with desktops. However:

  • Their user interfaces are severely constrained
  • They are always with the user
  • They have, or will have, location awareness
  • They will have plenty of other very innovative aspects

Thus the exciting conferencing developments will, several years hence, turn around mobile phones.

The phones will remain small so that they can easily fit in a pocket. Obviously they'll continue to get thinner. Innovation--in ways we don't imagine--will help us get by with small screens. Presumably, videocameras will often be built in. ... David Ferris

Cisco, Microsoft Will Be The Big Conferencing Players

For the last 10 years, the electronic conferencing world has tended to focus on high-end solutions such as those from Polycom. Think of special conference rooms, expensive WAN links, special equipment, and so on.

Over the last five years, PC-based solutions have been evolving. IBM/Lotus has been an innovator. Microsoft has gradually been building a position through Office Communications Server and Live Meeting. Ditto Cisco, around WebEx.

It's clear that PC-based solutions will dominate this market before long. They are much cheaper and are simpler to use, both from the user and the IT standpoint. PC-based will be constantly improving and constantly eating in to high end systems' capabilities. Video images will be of ever-higher quality, for example.

My hunch is that not merely will high end solutions be marginalized, but they will also be driven out of business. There will be a market for high-end conferencing solutions, but they will be based on commodity PC technology.

Microsoft overall has the advantage in this market, because it can provide the most user- and IT-familiar technology. Expect strong competition from Cisco over the next few years. Hopefully, the competition from IBM/Lotus will also be strong: it has much going for it. ... David Ferris

Judge Dismisses ZL Suit

Here's an update on the law suit between ZL Technologies and Gartner.

By way of background, in October email archiving vendor ZL Technologies filed a law suit against Gartner asking for $1.7B in damages caused in part by the Gartner Magic Quadrant. The story is very interesting from several points of view:

  • It raises the issue of the influence, good or bad, that reports like the Magic Quadrant have on company fortunes
  • It raises the question of whether the reports are as objective and valuable as they purport to be
  • It's a "David" vs. "Goliath" struggle, as the small ZL takes on the much larger and very influential Gartner

The news just came out that the judge dismissed the law suit and gave ZL 30 days to amend its compliant. The judge agreed with Gartner's view that the report is an opinion, not facts. But the judge left the door open for ZL to amend its motion and try again. The response from ZL owner Kon Leong suggests he intends to do that. ... David Ferris
